Drive Icons keep reverting

By akuma_g_spark ·
For a long time I have had custom icons for my hard drive, dvd drive and my media bay drive but I have just had to reinstall XP and now I am having a problem.

I have gone into the registry like before and created a key for each drive under
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE / SOFTWARE / Microsoft / Windows / CurrentVersion / Explorer / Drive Icons.
I have a key named for each drive and within those keys one names DefaultIcon & DefaultLabel.

This is exactly they way I did this before and it was fine.
Now though everything works until I reboot or log off, the media bay icons keep reverting to the windows default ones, strangely it is just them as the HDD,DVD & Network drive stay the way I made them.

I have had no luck in figuring this out, the best I could come up with was using a program like icon packager, but the same thing happens, or exporting the reg file and putting it in my startup folder but then I have to click yes to making changes to the registry every time I log on which I know is easy enough to do but its a pain as this used to work flawlessly before the reinstall.

Does anyone have any advice?
